Introduced by Appropriate Designs in 2019, HydroSketch — a cloud based software tool for quickly creating piping and electrical schematics for hydronic heating and cooling systems — now has several enhancements.

The new features include:

  • More than 50 new component symbols for devices such as magnetic separators, air-to-water heat pumps and specialized buffer tanks;
  • YouTube tutorials; and
  • Expanding library of “templates” that serve as starting points for basic hydronic schematics.

All HydroSketch users have immediately access to these updates. A free 30-day trial of HydroSketch can be downloaded at

Tutorials on using HydroSketch are available at
